I want to mention Eve who, I thought, didn’t really do much fighting as she telepathically controlled her monsters to fight all of her battles for her so that was pretty cool but then I also think that Linda, Prophet Kevin Tran’s mother, is also really badass without having to do much fighting as she had so much attitude and sass in just her words or her expressions.
Despite that, my favourite badass non-fighter has to be Charlie Bradbury. Computer nerd and LARPing geek, Charlie is first introduced (in 7.20 “The Girl with the Dungeons and Dragons Tattoo”) as a rebellious character who always tries to break the rules. When she is asked by her boss to uncover information from a hard drive, she manages to do it despite it being encrypted by a man who is much older than she is and has had more experience. Charlie then proceeds to check out the information even though she is told not to and finds out that the boss she’s working for is in fact a shape shifting monster. She acts as coolly as she possibly could in this situation she is flung into, learns fast and, after quickly being introduced to Sam and Dean, she decides to help them purely because it’s the right thing.
Charlie continues to be morally awesome as well as being badass using her computer skills and pop culture knowledge, which goes to the point where she is able to kill the Wicked Witch in 9.04 “Slumber Party” purely because she had read the Wizard of Oz books. That being said, she can fire a gun so she does have some fighting qualities in her, but the point is that she learnt how to fight by playing video games and doing what she loved. She is badass in a totally different way and, describing herself as “a wee bit obsessive”, she is incredibly inspiring to all of us fans who probably wouldn’t be able to fire a gun.
